    How do you like Book Shark for the kids you have using it? We are thinking about it for a 4th grader.

      It’s “okay”. Not totally my favorite selection of books, so we’re swapping them out with my literature units in between.

    Every year I homeschool we buy another book shelf… seriously. I should part with some books, but my kids are so spread out so I want to keep things to use for when my younger kids get older! 🙂 My basement is too wet to use for storage, I’m slowly running out of room!!!! lol!

      Yes, we did a big giveaway of old books when we cleaned out our basement. I gave a lot away to our options group, and I’ve also sold them at used curriculum fairs too 🙂 We’ve also donated some to libraries who take donations.

    Hello, I am a long time homeschool mom, our oldest being now 27. I can’t get organized! We have two children currently at home. Joseph is 12 and Savannah is 8. After years of homeschool I find that I can’t seem to separate old curriculums from what we really need to cover. Our younger children are different learners than our older three sons. Thank you for your advice. Susan

    What do you do with readers that you want to use for future kids? I don’t want to just put books on bookshelves bc I want them to stay “fresh..” but trying to figure out how to organize/store them. Love these tip Tuesday vids- keeping me inspired!

      I keep our readers together by grade, and only pull them out when I have a child in that grade. I keep them on my teacher manual shelves for them, then just pull them out as they go through them. So, I keep them separate from our normal books as well.

    Hello, Erica, I am beginning homeschooling in about a month. We are moving. I just want to know for someone that doesn’t have a sep room for class, what’s your advice as to setting up the learning area, and storage, etc.

    • erica January 9, 2017 at 6:40 pm

      I would probably get a bookshelf or some type of storage area where you can keep your homeschooling books/supplies that is easily accessible. That way it will be easy to pull out your work each day, and then put it away as well. One idea would be to get a small accordion file you could use to put your student’s daily work in. That way they could grab their file and easily know what to do each day.

    Hi Erica!
    You’ve inspired me so much lately!
    What is that wonderful little pencil holder you have in the first drawer you opened on the desk?

    • erica March 11, 2019 at 1:35 pm

      Hi Amanda, it’s an expandable drawer organizer similar to this one. They used to have clear, but now I’m just seeing grey and white: https://amzn.to/2NUQmgA
